Without a doubt, Zombie Culture has now reached a tipping point. It has literally clawed itself into our braaaaains (!), successfully infiltrated mainstream consciousness, and asserted itself as one of the most important, wildly entertaining, and participatory pop cultural trends of the new century.

As a direct result of this unprecedented social explosion, the Zombie Apocalypse seems to be on everybody’s lips these days. Should we categorize it as fiction, dismiss it as far-fetched paranoia, or speculate about it as a plausible scenario..? We, at Exhibit A Pictures, believe there’s never been a better time to release an epic, comprehensive, and contemporary cinematic celebration of Zombie Culture. And a look at our previous films (trailers provided below) will tell you why we’re the right team to tackle this enormous task!
Brought to the screen by the creators of the groundbreaking participatory docTHE PEOPLE vs. GEORGE LUCAS, and co-hosted by Geekscape’s own Jonathan London and Red Letter Media’s infamous Mr. Plinkett, DOC OF THE DEAD will delve deep into the myriad crevasses of zombie culture to deliver the first-ever in-depth look at a contemporary social pandemic of global proportions. Shot and edited in a cinematically edgy, high-octane style, DOC OF THE DEAD will host a rich and entertaining dialogue with zombie experts and celebrities, seek participation from YouTubers and indie filmmakers, and examine viral cultural trends to explore the possibility and ramifications of an actual zombie outbreak with sociologists, virologists, chemists, and members of the Zombie Research Society.
Concurrent with the release of DOC OF THE DEAD the movie, DOC OF THE DEAD the online experience will present a comprehensive repository of zombie expression and fandom—the equivalent of a virtual museum, where zombie art, videos, no-budget films, extended interviews, rants and critical essays will be uploaded on a regular basis. Look at it as a collection of supplemental features, directly available from our website, leading up to the film’s release.
More than just a movie, DOC OF THE DEAD will be an epic narrative supplemented by an ever-expanding transmedia catalogue of hundreds of hours of special features, and the most ambitious celebration of this extraordinarily rich, singular, and important culture ever committed to film.
